  • Changes in inhibitory control occur across the life span and have been associated with alterations in prefrontal function. In this study, ex-Gaussian analysis was used to reexamine data from an inhibitory control task. Participants (ages 6 to 82 years) composed three groups: children, young adults, and older adults. In fitting the ex-Gaussian distribution to reaction time data, estimates of three parameters were obtained: mu (mu), reflecting average performance; sigma (sigma), reflecting… CONTINUE READING
